About Ethereum

Vitalik Buterin published the Ethereum whitepaper in November 2013 and in 2015 Ethereum was launched. It’s the leading programmable blockchain in the world, meaning that developers can use it to build different types of new applications.

Ethereum’s native cryptocurrency is called Ether (ETH), which is the second most popular cryptocurrency after Bitcoin.

Like Bitcoin’s supply, the supply of ETH isn’t controlled by any government or company, meaning it is decentralized and scarce. Ether is used to make payments, as a store of value, or as collateral.

In the Ethereum blockchain, miners work to earn Ether. Besides being a tradeable cryptocurrency, Ether is also used by application developers to pay for transaction fees and services on the Ethereum network.

Ethereum can be used to decentralized centralized services. It can also be used to build Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAO) – completely autonomous, decentralized organization with no single leader.
